Let’s Say Nice Things About... The Hart Foundation

Now more than ever, the world needs a good dose of positivity. We here at Cageside Seats will do our small part to bring that positivity on a daily basis. Throughout the entirety of 2017, we’ll say something nice about wrestling and everything around it, past, present, and future.

As a reminder, only positive comments are allowed here. No negative comments, no troll comments, no back-handed compliments. None of that here. You have the rest of the site for that. Any comments that are not in the spirit of this feature will be flagged, deleted, and posters of said comments may be subjected to a ban.

Today’s Canada Day. A pretty special one at that. Today marks a century and a half since the country’s uniting of the colonies. Here’s to you for bringing us some of the greatest wrestlers ever, including today’s subject, The Hart Foundation.

NOTE: This is in reference to both the original incarnation from the late 1980s and early 1990s and the 1997 reboot.

As a stable, the 1997 version of the Hart Foundation is about as good a nationalistic stable there was. I mean, nothing brings fans together like pride of country, and for about five or six months, the new Hart Foundation were five of the most hated people in the WWF. I mean, they got people to cheer Shawn Michaels when he was arguably his most vile. That takes some effort.

The original incarnation wasn’t bad either. The perfect mix of Jim Neidhart being the tank and Bret Hart being the technician (and Jimmy Hart being the guide). While the 1997 Hart Foundation doesn’t get enough credit as being one of the great stables of the modern era (probably because they didn’t last long), the original group is in the conversation for best tag teams ever.

See? Easy, right? Say something nice about the Hart Foundation.

Got a suggestion for a future “Let’s Say Nice Things About...”? Hit me up on the Twitter gimmick @notoriouseddie. I may not always respond, but I will read it.
